Gauguin to Picasso: masterworks from Switzerland


This major exhibition provides a rare platform to distinguish collecting philosophies and situate them within the history and reception of Modern art. It pays tribute to two pioneering supporters of the arts, Rudolf Staechelin (1881 - 1946) and Karl Im Obersteg (1883 - 1969), both from Basel, who championed the work of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and School of Paris artists. The Phillips will exhibit more than 60 celebrated masterpieces created during the mid-19th and 20th centuries, including Van Gogh’s The Garden of Daubigny (1890), Picasso’s double-sided canvas Woman at the Theater / The Absinthe Drinker (1901), Paul Gauguin’s NAFEA faaipoipo (When Will You Marry?) (1892), and Marc Chagall’s three monumental Rabbi portraits from 1914: Jew in Black and White, Jew in Green, and Jew in Red. Gauguin to Picasso: Masterworks from Switzerland, The Staechelin & Im Obersteg Collections is co-organized by the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, in Madrid.
